the president over this and federal court to run into timber. and the obama administration appealed. what was fascinating as they went to the judge catherine after she gave her decision and the 112 page opinion which is a brilliant kind of deception on the destruction of the separation of powers and is worth reading and asked for an emergency stay meaning they wanted it back into the fact until the court would hear the case. she refused and they demanded an emergency hearing with the appellate court at 9 a.m. in the morning the next monday for an emergency hearing and an emergency stay which they got. the wally reason that i and the lawyers can make out that the obama administration reacted so aggressively is because they are already using it and probably on the pakistani u.s. gold nationalism. the inability to curb wall street, a close examination of the obama health care bill which was written by the corporate lobbyists and particularly with valor who worked for bachus and is now back into the industry. the inability to deal with those of the most important crisis that is confronting a
in the obama administration. since this discussion from december, the secretary announced she is leaving her post at the end of the president's first term. >> good morning, and welcome. we have a remarkable gathering of women this morning, and they are -- their personal stories and backgrounds are as varied as america itself. they come from los angeles and cleveland and baltimore. they grew up poor, not so poor, asian-american, african-american, hispanic, and white. each of them have one thing in common. they are all phenomenally successful. each rose to the top of their field, whether parts or politics or sports, and we are going to talk to them today about how they did it, ask them what the drive was, what kind of advice they have for younger people. we have one of the country's most respected tv journalists, an opera star, a physicist, youngest woman serving in the u.s. congress, a rock star ceo, and the most decorated figure skater in u.s. history. we are going to -- i want to welcome not only the people here in the auditorium of the "washington post" which is in downtown washington d.c.
to the food stamp issue we pursued with the obama administration where we asked him to test the experimental project where we limited the use of the food stamp benefits for products that were clearly unhealthy and contributed to the obesity problem and higher health problems was more about health care and more about a health problem than about a sort of concerted an premeditated desire to influence people's behavior. the mayor is very devoted to and very committed to policies that improve the health outcome for families and people in the city of new york. it was something he absolutely believed in, and fought hard for. unfortunately the president and secretary of agricultural said no. it wasn't something they wanted to test or go through with the experiment with. i don't know that the bloomberg administration that that carries forward to many other places or ways. we want to encourage work. we think work is a key part of a individual's life and livelihood of the city. and it ought to be a prerequisite. it's called the supplement tal nutrition assistance program. and the use of the food stamp
, but with the re-election of the obama administration it would seem it's pretty much off the table, you know, the five-year plan is already done for offshore. they don't seem to be showing any movement toward expanding ax excess. is there a deal that could be made there? how would it happen? >> well, a lot of questions there. let me try to remember them all and respond accordingly. first of all, there's lot of opportunity to change policy to encourage the development of u.s. resource. it doesn't have to occur within the administration. the lands act authority in the administration the congress could act. there is already -- talking about need to expand the potential opportunity. you have bipartisan support in the state of virginia, you have talk up-and-down the south atlantic and potential opportunity to look in the area, to develop the resources. you see the new chairman of the energy committee who is talking about a revenuing sharing proposal very early on with senator mor cow sky. these are significant shifts in policy that would allow for the responsible development of the nation's oil a
only happen with the needed change in this administration's chief economic policies. president obama has gotten his tax increases and now it's time for him and mr. lew, if confirmed, to focus on the need to cut spending. the other side of the president's so-called balanced approach to the debt reduction. we did have the nomination live on c-span. you can see it on the web site, c-span.org. this week >>> i think that collectivization of the minds of america's founding fathers is particularly dangerous because as i say so often in the book, they were not a collective unit, and presenting them as such intends to dramatically oversimplified the politics of the founding generation. and then as it comes to be used as a big battering ram to beat people over the heads with and they are incoherent and found. >> back to new york city now to hear from the world and 2013 festival hosted by the economist magazine. for ourin me discussion about capitalism in the world in 2013. beingom >> the director of the "economist," and jackson initiative on exclusive capitalism. that's where we are going to s
with reuters. i've wanted to ask a question about apis relationship with the obama administration. i know, well, before the election, you said that it seemed like they were kind of being more, or reaching out more to the oil and gas industry compared to the start of the administration. are using more of that now that the reelection has happened, are you seeing that there's more outreach or that you're able to get your messages across to the administration? what are hearing from them? and then also i wanted to know, you talked about expanding, but with the reelection of the obama administration, it would seem like that's pretty much off the table, you know, the five year plan is already done for offshore. they don't seem to be showing any movement towards expanding access, so is there some type of deal i could be made or how would or how would that happen speak with a lot of questions. let me try to remember them all and respond accordingly. first of all there's lots of opportunity to change policy, to encourage the development of u.s. resource. it does and i'll have to occur within the administ
the obama administration's done a good job with the rebalancing on most of the aspects to it. they've done a lot of little things, and they tie them together with some good rhetoric and diplomacy. but the individual pieces of rebalancing are actually quite modest. and i'm glad for that, because i don't want to see us go towards excessive confrontation. in the sense that i think we have very strong allies in the region, we have a lot of economic b and strategic strengths that china does not have, for example, our population trajectory, for example the opennesses of our political system sw what that does to make the investment economy a haven for dollars. there are a lot of ways you can go down the list, and when you compare the two countries, you see a lot of american strengths that are enduring, and when you with mention our allies on top of that -- which dick did earlier -- there's no particular reason for us to think that we need to shrink back. but i would worry a lot about potential disputes that are unnecessary over issues like the islands. and let me give you one very concrete exampl
think the analogy to the food stamp issue that we pursued with the obama administration where we asked him to test and expand the project where we limited use of the food stamp benefits for products that were clearly unhealthy and contributed the obesity problem and contributed to higher health care costs, was really more about health care and more about a health problem than about a sort of concerted and premeditated desire to influence people's behavior. the mayor is very devoted and very committed to policy that improves the health outcomes for families and people in the city of new. this is something that he absolutely believed in and fought hard for. fortunately, the president, secretary of agriculture said no, it wasn't something they wanted to test. or even experiment with to be able to work. but i don't know that, at least from the bloomberg administration, that that carries for to many, many other ways. we definitely want to encourage work. we think work is a key part of an individuals life and livelihood in the city and they ought to be a prerequisite to receiving public assi
the messiness. help us understand the choices that the obama administration make and how you think out to deal with this. >> it's good to be here. i want to thank brookings and appreciating her with angel and michael. this whole thing reminds me of the story, i'm just a country lawyer from colorado, but the story of the guy who prayed to win the lottery ticket. he just wanted to win the lottery over and over again, and he was constantly asking the lord, would you help me? would you out of? i've lived a good life. i've never asked you for very much, and years went by come he never won the lottery. finally, he is down on his knees, help me, i need this money so badly. finally, the clouds part and a voice comes down from heaven, why don't you meet me halfway and just buy a ticket? >> guest: colorado and washington just wanted to get. about a ticket to the slaughter. now we have to figure out is this a can of lottery that will be good or bad. if you don't like lotteries, i respect some people don't like them at all, can this be a less bad lottery than it otherwise might be? think about the winners
leadership of the obama administration. we were able to use the tools and save this individuals home. there are many other stories like that. we've got to personalize this. to me, the key to preserving homeownership in this country, the key to financial success, and i hope the major objective of the consumer financial protection bureau is to provide financial literacy. let people understand what is out there. let them understand their own capacity. let them understand the options that are there. financial literacy is critically important, and then access to financial products and services that are fair, affordable, and understandable. if we can take those steps we can help empower people to not only own a home or to make the right financial decisions, but to help build our economy. so i just urge you to be bold. when congress passed dodd-frank, when congress established the bureau, we wanted you to be bold because we don't want to repeat what we've seen over the last five years again. we want you to be bold in protecting families from abusive financial products, get rid of them. empo
